  3. Machine quilting with Decorative stitches

    by , 10-10-2013 at 11:24 AM
    I have a Pfaff creative 2.0 sewing/embroidery machine. When I use stitch #89 to quilt gingerbread scallops on my roofs, on my quilt sandwich, the bobbin thread shows on the top. The original tread tension is 9. I've reduced it as far as possible and still the bobbin thread shows. When I take the same stitch and do it on a single piece of fabric the bobbin thread is fine.

  9. Traveling with my sewing machine!

    by , 10-07-2013 at 10:14 PM
    After getting back from the AQS show in Des Moines (still just thinking about those jaw-dropping quilts!), I realized that my house was showing my lack of cleaning attention and have to host bunco next week--so really dug in and did some of that "deep" cleaning Managed to get the WWII Vet quilt cut (pretty simple pattern--I hope!) and got the Guild newsletter "to bed" and managed to do some sample quilting on the long arm for my new business--but no real work yet.
